Arrival and Dismissal

Arrival & Dismissal Procedures

Supervision of Students

It has come to our attention that many of our students arrive to school prior to 8:15 a.m. Florida Statue 1003.31 requires that the school system provides supervision for students 30 minutes before the school day begins and 30 minutes after the school day ends. Our official school start time is 8:45 a.m. and our dismissal time is 3:00 p.m. and 2:00 pm on Wednesdays. Students should not arrive to school prior to 8:15 a.m. The safety of students represents the primary concern. Our goal is to ensure that all of our students arrive and leave school safely and that adequate supervision is available during their arrival and departure. Thank you for your cooperation in playing your role to help our school team provide a safe and positive learning environment for all students.
